About the role and team
Responsible for supporting the Tele-fundraising programme and driving forward improvements, the Deputy Manager – Tele-Fundraising role supports the wider Supporter Acquisition team to make contact with new and existing supporters. You will enable the team of Tele-Fundraisers to engage supporters, promoting Shelter’s work and educating them on housing and homelessness issues. This key work is critical in enhancing Shelter’s ability to retain and recruit supporters to drive our fight against social injustice forward. This is achieved strictly without making any cold calls. Alongside this, the post holder will be responsible, with support from the team Manager, for inputting data and maintaining our supporter database.
The majority of Shelter’s fantastic Tele-Fundraisers are ex-Shelter clients who have lived experience of homelessness or bad housing. A vital part of the Deputy Manager position is to support their development and work with the Tele-Fundraising Manager to prepare them for their next step in employment. As part of the wider Supporter Acquisition team within Individual Giving, Tele-Fundraising is responsible for helping Shelter to achieve our ambitious fundraising targets to support our work.
We are happy to talk about flexible working, personal growth, and how to promote a workplace where you can be yourself and achieve success based only on your merit.
A home is a fundamental human need. Yet millions of people across Britain struggle daily with homelessness, bad housing conditions, soaring rents, discrimination and the threat of eviction. So, we are striving for change, with individuals, in communities, across society, and leading the way to a safe home. We need ambitious, motivated individuals who are passionate about our cause to join us at this exciting time.
At Shelter we are united by our purpose to defend the right to a safe home. Our enemy is the social injustice at the core of the escalating housing emergency. We believe that to win that fight, we must be representative of the people we are here to help and those who support our movement for change. In all our people decisions, we take pride in being inclusive, fair, equitable and transparent. We have committed to combat racism both within and outside Shelter and welcome you on our journey to becoming a truly anti-racist organisation.
